How long do dental implants last?

If you're looking to replace missing teeth, dental implants are dental restorations that look, feel and act almost exactly like natural teeth do. With proper care dental implants can last for decades or even a lifetime.


Dental implants look, feel and function almost exactly like natural teeth. Dental implants are a great solution for missing teeth, that will allow you to smile, eat and talk just like you did before.

How long do dental implants last?

As long as you take good care of them, dental implants can last 25 years or more, and in some cases, even for life. Exactly how long your dental implants will last will be influenced the following factors:

Care: It's important to care for your dental implants just as you would take care of your teeth. Daily flossing and brushing, as well as seeing a dentist every six months helps to keep your dental implants, and your teeth, in the best condition possible.

Good Habits: You should avoid chewing or biting down on extremely hard items, like pen tips or pencils, and do not open things with your teeth, since these behaviours can damage your implants.
